Finishing Up Week 1



So I have finished the first week of Accutane. Here are some things I've noticed:

  • lips are drier than normal but definitely not cracked/peeling yet. It is just barely uncomfortable enough that I keep some sort of chapstick or moisturizer on them during the day and slather on the aquaphor before bed
  • inside of my nose seems to be a little dry and for a lack of better words, has bloody boogers
  • still getting pimples, no more or fewer than before beginning Accutane. Although, it does seem like they dry up a bit quicker

It sure is nice to only have to wash and moisturize my face rather than doing that AND layering on prescription creams multiple times a day. From reading other people's blogs/comments it seems like others experience more drying out faster than I have. But my skin was pretty oily to begin with...

Keeping my fingers crossed that Accutane works for me because I'll be pretty let down if it doesn't.

Just you wait, those dry lips will become your worst enemy ;) Glad it's going okay so far. Good luck! Can't wait to hear your progress.
